      Product Description:
      Stanley Porter and Mark Boda here bring together a group of
      internationally respected scholars to provide an up-to-date
      assessment of New Testament translation in terms of textual
      criticism, translation theory, and theology.
      Each of the three sections includes theoretical essays on
      the interface of a given area with particular issues in
      translation, followed by applications of the theory to a
      common passage — the story of the rich man and Lazarus found
      in Luke 16:19-31.
      Advocates of different positions note the translational
      implications that follow from choosing a particular textual
      tradition or type over another. These differing perspectives
      allow for both theoretical diversity and concrete
      differences in the practice of translation.
      Translating the New Testament concludes with an overall
      assessment of the field of text criticism and translation
      studies.

      Contributors: Barbara Aland, Mark J. Boda, Philip Comfort,

      Longenecker, Stanley E. Porter, Matthew Brook O'Donnell,
